Hey megsal,
I have included a link to the manufacturers’ website that shows all their repair facilities by state and it has phone numbers for each one of them. I do know that the manufacturer usually requires proof of purchase from whatever retailer that sold the camera to you. I hope this helps!

Toshiba camileo H10 camcorder. No picture. Screen shows Zoom 1 fail E AF PI fail /.


Hello Charles,

Just to be sure it is NOT a software issue, remove the battery then replace it back after about 5 minutes and then try turning it ON again.

The error you are getting is a "zoom error". A problem connected with your camcorder's optical zoom not working, it is either it has broken parts or something is caught in the zoom mechanism.

If something serious happened to it, like if it was dropped accidentally or a force was applied to it, then it is probably broken parts inside and needs servicing. Otherwise, it could be just dirt or sand stuck inside the mechanism.

To try and resolve the problem with dirt/sand you can:

Hold the camcorder with the lens facing the ground, then tap the side of your camcorder repeatedly.

OR

Use a canned air and spray it into the lens area of your camcorder.

The zoom did not operate normally insert the battery again and turn the camera on. if the camera does not op normally do not put excessive pressure on it and contact the service center i got this error...


The solution is very simple.
you are going to remove the battery (while this screen is on) as the command screen tells.
And your camera should function properly.
I tried it and it worked.

NB; Do not try to close your camera then remove the battery.
Remove it while the camera is still on.

Zoom error on J27 fuji camera - brand new can take photos but can't use zoom feature


There is a problem with the gear system for the zoom feature, most likely a damaged gear, or something tricky. If it's still under warranty, take it back for a replacement, or send it off to repair. You have to disassemble the entire camera to fix something inside the lens assembly, and they usually just replace the whole assembly, from what I understand, and it's pricey. If the unit isn't under warranty, or they won't cover it with this problem (sometimes they will say it's neglect or abuse to the lens assembly), you can try to push the zoom button and gently pull to try to help the gears engage, if they're just stuck, or some sand, etc., got inside the gears. But first, try to blow any dirt or sand, etc., out of the lens assembly with some compressed air. If that doesn't work, place the unit flat on something soft, and hit the zoom button while you try to lift and gently twist the lens. Do this a few times, but beware that you might do further damage, so go easy on it. If this doesn't work, the unit will have to be serviced. Get an estimate first- that can get pricey, and sometimes it's just better to get a new camera. Hope you get lucky and get it working.

I have a Nikon D40, which I recently dropped. :( Camera seemed okay, but then I noticed later that the 18-55 lens was being less than cooperative. It now is stuck on 55 adn will not zoom out. It still...


It sound like the lens zoom has broken.
If other lens is ok and this lens still focuses automatically the conection is working.

Sorry to bring the bad news but it may cost less to get a new lens than to get it fixed.

Someone else might have an idea how to fix the zoom, good luck.

Zoom error comes up on LCD screen when trying to take picture....


I had this error and did two things to fix it and am not really sure which worked, or it may have been both:
1) Charge your batteries or replace with high power (2700) type
2)Is there a bit of dirt stuck between the zoom bit and the body?

With my S1000fd, if I press the on/off while holding the zoom bit so it cannot come out fully, I get the "zoom error" message.

Hope this helps.

Zoom error


I had sent my camera in for the same issue and they did nothing to help with it. Seems to happen when battery gets low or dies, lack of on-screen battery meter doesn't help. Typically have to manually twist the lens to close it or open it after fresh batteries installed and then seem to fix it.

Canon MVX250i Zoom Problem


I had this problem on this camera. I found the battery removal rechnique seemed to work for only a short while, then the problem would come back repeatedly. I looked into just buying a new one but when I explained the problem to a salesman in an independent camera shop, he asked me if I'd just tried hitting the top of the camera. Apparently the motor sometimes gets stuck. Since the camera was virtually useless I tried this (hit it 2 or 3 times quite firmly, near the lens and by the accessory shoe). Now it zooms in and out perfectly and so far hasn't reverted to its problem state.

Must try to give the camera shop some other business - maybe when I buy a new stills camera

Power zoom not working


If you dont have rechargable NiMH batteries get these first. Alkalines just dont have the power anymore these newer devices need. If you do have NiMH and yours still having problems try and tap on the lenses as you power it on. As the motors that drive the autofocus and the lens mechanisim wear they draw more current. When this happens the unit draws more power then the batteries can supply and you run into problems. If your camera has a battery pack you may need a new one. They test them new and everything is good on paper but after some use things change.
